Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

Also. Any help identifying the bolt would be good. The head has "M 8.8 BUFO" written on it. I measure the threads with a digital caliper and I'm getting about 9.7mm.

Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

I should add that we did an engine alignment when installing a new prop shaft and coupling back in October. From my notes, the opposite corner was raised 5mm. That was probably 125 engine hrs ago....

Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

About an 1/8" of bolt came off with the head. So I'd say around 1/4" is still sticking out of the case and through the bracket.

BOLT head in the Bilge...

So we're off cruising, finally, and we've had a few issues with the boat and engine, but nothing major. But today I found a head of a large bolt in the bilge. Searched for the place it came from and...

St. Brendan's Isle - HEALTH INS. Address?

Re: SPLIT-HALF COUPLING - replacing old keyway'd coupling

The R&D part I'm looking at is 202-255. It says 1.25" bore is available. Or I'll buy the .75" which I've seen online and have a local shop increase the bore.

Here's the R&D PDF I'm looking at......

Re: SPLIT-HALF COUPLING - replacing old keyway'd coupling

How would the split-type fail? Not grip well enough because it was out of round? Or?

And yes, this option is to do the fix without pulling the shaft/taking the boat out of the water. But that is...

Maybe, but the prop shaft keyway is damaged also.

Service Marina - PENSACOLA or MOBILE

I'm looking at trucking my sailboat (33') from Lake Michigan to FL this fall... how original, I know... What I need to find is a gin-pole for mast re-stepping (do-it-yourself would be best) and a...

Re: Cockpit COMFORT - folding seats, cushions, etc?

Hi Gary,
Since we have the same boat, I'd love to see how you've added the helm seat. It's something I've toyed with, but resolved to keep that space flexible (standing, sitting to the side, etc.). ...

Cockpit COMFORT - folding seats, cushions, etc?

Once in a while I see folks comfortably lounging in their cockpits or on deck, for hours at a time. Reading, sleeping, stargazing. How are they doing this? I am almost always uncomfortable in mine,...

Re: PORTA POTTI - A 'no no' or 'okay' for cruising?

Mr. Jones,
That's pretty funny, but it's not an open 'bucket'. Maybe you've never used a modern PP. They have sealed holding tanks, fit into a canvas shopping bag, and tote just fine.

And...

Re: Haven't used a PortaPot in a few years, but

What seems to be the key to having no 'stink' is to not use it for urine at all. That's what ends up stinking. We've followed that advice and used the enzyme additive that's recommended, and have had...

Re: PORTA POTTI - A 'no no' or 'okay' for cruising?

I was thinking it might be good to buy second one, or a just the holding tank, and use it as a backup when the first is full.

LBS Rating for GAS HATCH STRUTS?

I'm replacing the gas strut on my forward hatch. The old one has no markings on it whatsoever, so I do not know it's rating.

Anyone know how to determine what replacement to buy? If you buy one...

Re: Is this SAFE? - Propane tank

LOL. Yeah, a bit, but it's no glamour boat and I think I can shoulder the shame of it. :) And I must say, I'll take it when it comes with the title of "SAFEST" you've ever seen! Thanks Chris.
